    BRILLIANT! It's Norman McLaren meets David Hockney.

    I think the term is "pixellation" for that kind of stop motion with actors (I think that's what McLaren used).

    Very kewl! It is much more sophisticated than a short animated film I saw in the early '80s where a trip through a tunnel and around town was shown by a person placing a series of single photos on a square. As the sequence sped up the hands became quite jerky and then almost disappeared.

    That is outstanding! Its always amazing how creative people can be with Polaroid stuff. And this one was done with the "lowly" 600.
